Welcome to the Oelwein Area Historical Society Museum. We have provided a virtual tour for those of you who are unable to visit Oelwein, Iowa. The Exhibits and Sights Around Town sections contain many photos and descriptions of artifacts. We plan to change the photos occasionally so please visit occasionally to view more of our heritage. Whenever new material is posted we will put a link on the New Items section of the Welcome / Home page.
